    why not all of them?

    =============
    thor's a myth
    yuki-onna's a folklore
    the boy who cried wolf's a fable

    i'm looking at the tagged novels and got confused...
    The Zashiki Warashi of Intellectual Village is obviously based on folklore (haven't read)
    Omniscient Reader’s Viewpoint does talk about legends, history & folklore (only read the beginning)
    I Play the Role of (Villain/Heroine) in a Japanese-style Otome Game one of the main character is youkai and onmyouji, with supernatural set-school. (read, haven't caught up)

    it seems that those tagged here.. "have supernatural entities that is not modern ghost" but it feels like that's not folklore? if "there's a character based on folklore" then the novel must be tagged, The Novel Extra should be tagged too based on the tower arc.

    which folklore was it? the novel extra, i mean.

    rule of thumb. if you're not sure enough to add or remove a spesific tag, just leave it as it is.

    if you are sure, but the tags keep getting removed (or re-added), just hit the flag icon on the tag edit log page (to report it)

    in TNE tower arc, there's mythical beings, legendary figures, god and goddess. i remember Athena. There's also bird and horse (forgot its name). Recently there's Jesus.
    those are iirc. If you ask in the LCD thread, there should be people with better analysis and memory than me who can give the list

    That fits more under the mythology tag.

    Wondering about the "Medical Knowledge" tag. Currently the definition is "female lead". Is this a mistake?

    Either someone trolled or made an accident.

    @runsing, this one needs to have its definition removed! >.<

    Yup good catch. The definitions are freely editable by anyone and they get locked after 24hrs pass. Looks like someone was trolling or made a mistake

    there was a surge of "female protagonist transported to trash body, but she's a medical genius and fix her body to be beautiful and suitable for cultivation", maybe the description was made at that time?
    Like villainess noble girls, that trope was huge. Now boys reincarnated as villain too, or girls but in cultivation world so there's no nobles

    Honestly, Villainess Noble Girls was a flawed tag by default, it was basically made to fit all Otome Game Reincarnation novels while also including stuff like Kenkyo, that is a Shoujo Manga Reincarnation.

    Except... Kenkyo has no Nobles either, so the very idea is flawed... The tag's name is just plain bad, but there isn't much fix for it. It should be something like "Villainess Protagonist" at the start, but now that Otome Game Reincarnations also have Male Protagonists... There isn't much of a way to encompass the trope with a single tag anymore I guess.

    Adult is porn.
    Mature deals with mature topics.

    Or at least that's how it's supposed to be, a lot of people misuse those though.

    Also there should be a yaoi tag and yaoi related tags, please don't remove those because how can we exclude them in the search criteria when they don't exist

    You exclude Yaoi, and you exclude Shounen Ai.
    A few people, since in English they have quite a similar definition but on NU, they cover different subjects.

    Ok thanks. Just wondering why it's not a tag.
